Whakamauru | De-escalation for Volunteers (Online)

De-escalation training for volunteers!

De-escalation skills are an important life skill for many people in our community, regardless of where they are or what role that they have. De-escalation is a learned behaviour that is intended to prevent the escalation of conflict and learning how to do so compassionately and safety is often of critical importance to those who work with members of the vulnerable community. This 1.5 hour workshop will give participants practical skills to be able to support de-escalation primarily for their volunteer role, but also in the professional and personal lives as well.

Volunteer South is supporting member organisations to upskill their volunteers and de-esclation skills are an important part of any volunteer role. This workshop is free for volunteers to attend and the Zoom link will be sent out to participants approximately 48 hours before.
